Added to this, for the first time ever, The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera, the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal College of Music and The Royal College of Art will come together.

This five-way collaboration will feature Doctor Who and Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa and Mei Mac.

This special performance will encompass the themes of love and togetherness, combining music, dance, art and theatre in what is being billed as the ultimate Royal collaboration.

However, the centrepiece of the Coronation Concert will be Lighting up the Nation, which will see the country come together for the coronation with iconic locations across the UK lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.
